Romeo, oh Romeo Simon Asphar falls truly, madly, deeply in love with the classy new Alfa Romeo Spider Spring is in the air, lambs are frolicking, trout are grazing – or should that be the other way around? Anyway, you get the picture: it’s time to think of budding beauty, freedom, and pleasure. A new Alfa then? Perfect. The new Alfa Spider, the latest open-topped Alfa Romeo in the company’s outstanding legacy of iconic convertibles, has just gone on sale in the UK. Derived from Giorgetto Giugiaro’s multiple award-winning Alfa Brera design, the new Alfa Spider was developed by Pininfarina in collaboration with Alfa Romeo Centro Stile. Winner of the Cabrio of the Year award at the 2006 Geneva Motorshow, the new Alfa Spider combines superlative engineering with the outstanding performance and handling characteristics appropriate to the pedigree of one of the world’s most famous sporting marques. Four versions of the new Alfa Spider, priced from £25,995 on-the-road, are available from launch, with a choice of two petrol powerplants: a 2.2 litre 185 bhp 4-cylinder unit, and a 3.2 litre 260 bhp V6; together with Alfa Romeo’s widely acclaimed 2.4 litre 20V 200 bhp MultiJet (JTDM) turbodiesel Sharing platform and components with the Alfa Brera, on an identical wheelbase, the suspension of the new Alfa Spider combines a proven high double wishbone system at the front with a sophisticated multilink rear configuration. The combination promotes smooth, accurate steering response,
exceptional stability and controllability – even when close to adhesion limits – and first class body control allied to remarkable comfort over all road surface conditions. The Alfa Spider offers direct, lively and responsive speed-sensitive power assisted steering.
”You don’t need to justify buying an Alfa – it just feels right. And boy, does it look right too!” The Alfa Spider is fitted with a fully automatic, double-layer fabric roof which may be retracted via a single dashboard mounted control switch in less than 25 seconds. A separate dedicated roof storage compartment ensures that the Alfa Spider’s generous stowage capacity is not compromised. The luggage compartment offers a 200 litre capacity – 36 per cent more than the previous Alfa Spider – even with the roof folded away. The storage compartment is concealed beneath a flush-fitting body panel incorporating aerodynamic blisters which adopt the profile of individual, driver and passenger roll-over bars. A transparent wind break installed between the roll-over bars significantly reduces air turbulence within the passenger compartment during highspeed driving. Driver-orientated ergonomics, superior passenger comfort and lavish standard equipment levels are fundamental to the
interior design of the new convertible. The Alfa Spider offers one, extremely generous, standard equipment specification across the model range, including many features only available as expensive options on rival models, including automatic ‘Dual Zone’ climate control, cruise control, ‘Follow-Me-Home’ headlights, rear parking sensors, a multifunction display and trip computer, fog lights, 17” spoked alloy wheels and an RDS 6speaker stereo radio with CD player. A leather interior is standard on 3.2 V6 versions. As with all Alfa Romeos, the interior of the new two-seat Alfa Spider convertible is focused on the driver’s immediate surroundings, which have been designed with an emphasis on ergonomic functionality. A height adjustable driver’s seat allied to a rake and reach adjustable, leather-clad steering wheel guarantees a perfect driving position for the widest possible cross-section of customers. Sales of ‘H’ segment vehicles – sports cars – have more than doubled in Europe over the last 10 years to almost 400,000 units, of which half have been soft-topped models. Unusually, the more northerly the market, the higher the demand amongst European women for convertibles, and in Britain, almost 50 per cent of convertible buyers are women. But man, woman or baboon, you don’t ever really need to justify buying an Alfa – just get behind the wheel for a test drive and all the above info fades away – it just feels right. And boy, does it look right too!

What Katie says Katie experiences an unfamiliar sensation at a health resort…
Spa-ing match I walk into the forest, picking my way through the mud in white, fluffy slippers, like an escapee from the madhouse. Red arrows painted on tree trunks lead the way through the wilderness. Ten minutes and two arrows later I am bored. “I don't know what to do…” I whine to the puddles. If a columnist whines in the forest and no one can hear, does she make a sound? I stop following the arrows. When I find my way out of the forest, I kill the rest of the day trying to get high on spa water and Pilates. By the time it hits five o’clock, I have exhausted myself by lounging around in the pool area, sweating in the spa
Katie’s picks It's March now, which is as good a time as any to abandon your over-optimistic New Year's resolutions for once and all, and treat yourself to a grand old night out. And what better place to drown your sorrows and shake your ass than the Joogleberry Playhouse – officially my new favourite venue of 2007! Among their diverse and multitalented offerings (check out their website www.joogleberry.com for more information), may I draw your attention to the sensational Big Hand. They've opened the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, they've played a private party for Tim Burton, all the while headlining any venue from a high society fashion party to a hippy peace camp. They've got kudos. They've got cool (if ridiculous) names: 'Lolo' and 'Pabs', Luke 'Black Elk' Martin and Phil 'Is He On Drugs?' Ramsay. and they've got a killer combination of “heartbreaking harmonies”, cult status and their own unique brand of Zorbic music.

“If a columnist whines in the forest and no one can hear, does she make a sound?” Five incredible courses later I'm necking another brandy and feeling warmly delighted with myself. The couples at the tables besides me have long bored of each other, and their small talk has dried up to the occasional, hushed mumble. Julie, on the other hand, is still hilarious company. Stuffed, sedated and spa'd to perfection, I shrink off to my room and throw myself onto a pile of cushions, on the high, huge and fluffy comfort of my fresh double bed. Propping myself up, Julie under the covers (in hardback only) and a cuppa at my side, I suddenly feel rather odd. Am I ill? This is weird, and a bit unnerving. I check my temperature, feel my stomach, but there's no signs of any outward issues. What the…? The feeling becomes oddly familiar as it starts to settle over me. I remember it now, and the queasiness dies down. This, I recall, is what it feels like to relax.

The night before I leave for Champneys health resort two really bad things happen: First, my mother, who I'm sweetly treating to the break, is mysteriously struck by illness and can't come. I will have to go it alone. Second, my flatmate points out that this being a health retreat, I will probably be served on a diet of rabbit food and rye bread – but it's too late to buy bickies. So the next day, when I catch the train to the countryside, I am friendless and food-less, and feeling less than optimistic. When, just over an hour later, we pull up to a pretty period house, nestled against the woods and surrounded by swathes of lush green fields, my spirits start to perk up a bit. Maybe things won't be so bad after all? Even if my now signal-less mobile is making me feel nervous again. There's no doubt about it, Champney's is stunning. It turns out the food is a brilliant buffet of indulgent delights – from smoked salmon to fajitas. The grounds spread for miles, and include everything from assault courses to acupuncture, swimming pools to spa baths. The only thing they haven't got is internet access – which ominously goes down the day I arrive. No phone. No internet. An hour after settling into my suite, emerging in my obligatory dressing gown and slippers (which all guests are given to wear) and checking out the facilities, I wonder, what the hell am I supposed to do?
and falling asleep by the fireplace. I'm impressed by my resourcefulness for amusing myself, and also at avoiding the odd looks the other guests are giving me. Since most of the guests are couples twice my age, I do look provocatively like an eccentric young millionaire or a celebrity in detox. The effect is enforced in the evening when I realise I will have to sit through the five course dinner – on my own! I pull on my fishnet hold ups (waste of time those were) and grab my book: Julie Burchill's Guardian columns. In the dinning room people try to catch my eye or the cover of my book, I coyly angle both away.

Dani’s diary aged 19 Dani the “over-hormonal, yoyo-knickered teenage strumpet”* finds it hard to escape Brighton for a weekend away One more week done, lived bearably. Trying to organise my life without knowing where I want it to go or where I want to be. It’s weird, having gone from having all the opportunities anyone could ask for at my feet to being able to have them again but being too scared to. I’m bored of feeling like this, I’m bored of writing about it, I’m bored of living it, I’m bored of people telling me that things won’t happen overnight. So I suppose I should change that and stop writing about it. Done! Okay… So. My boyfriend’s dad won a weekend break in a really nice hotel, and gave it to my boyfriend and me, which is great. It’s a big old manor house, which means I can spend the weekend pretending I’m in a period drama and proving to my imaginary audience that I would have made a far better Elizabeth Bennett than Keira Knightly. Other than that, the weekend away will also give me and my boyfriend a chance to grab some time on our own. As that rarely happens. It’s weird being with someone who lives in a house full of other people, because you end up dating all of them. Even when we do go out, we can’t walk four feet without bumping into someone we know. When you live in Brighton and you’re in love the combination can be great, but you soon realise that you’re basically dating the city as well as your partner. The only differences being that you can’t really have sex with the city, unless you have a bike with a loose saddle and a street full of cobbled speed bumps. You can’t talk to Brighton, although I have never seen a place where so many people chat idly to empty space, so you could say that you can have a pretty one-sided discussion with our fair town. You can’t go out for the evening with a place, but many of us spend our time going out in this place as it’s always there. You can never escape Brighton. You can try, but if you go somewhere else and someone asks you where you’re from and you say ‘Brighton’, chances are they’ll want to talk to you about how cool it is here.
Nearly everyone I know who lives here wants to leave and everyone I know who doesn’t wants to move here Brighton is only cool if you have either just moved down, are visiting or lived here when you where younger. Having to live and work here makes it just another ordinary place. Except you can’t walk 50 yards without collecting 100 flyers here. Nearly everyone I know who lives here wants to leave and everyone I know who doesn’t wants to move here. Nothing that exciting happens here. But nothing really exciting happens anywhere. We have to make our own excitement and Brighton is the best place for that. Every little thing here is seen as Breaking News. A new restaurant opens and all the magazines cover it. Brad Pitt sneezes, accidentally says Brighton and everyone wants to live here. Chris Eubank drives along the seafront in his ridiculous car and everyone stops to look. So what? It’s not like we haven’t seen it before! Brighton fills you with false hope of going somewhere from here but very few people actually do! The trick is to make it big somewhere else and then move here. To trick us average folk into believing we have a chance!

Brighton Tigers on ice The development of an Olympic-sized ice rink at Black Rock will see the return of the legendary Tigers
I’d never been to an ice hockey game before, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. What followed was 100 minutes of possibly the most exciting, high-octane and occasionally brutal sport I think I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, on the night, the Servettes lost in a very close encounter to SC Bern, but the atmosphere was absolutely electric. The thousands of fans cheered their sides on for the entirety of the game. Take my word for it, folks: when ice hockey comes to Brighton, it is going to be HUGE! Post match, I managed to grab a quick photo with Chris and the Servettes’ mascot, an enormous bald eagle called Sherkin. I was quite scared that she was going to rip my face off with her gigantic beak, but Chris was there to reassure me, and the birdie was good as gold. I also managed to fit in a celeb spot while I was rinkside (despite being in a foreign country!): Phil Collins’ estranged wife Orianne Cevey, absolutely stunning in a Geneve-Servette jersey that looked about ten sizes too big for her petite frame. The couple, of course, had a home together on the banks of Lake Geneva before their separation in March last year. Personally, having seen in Geneva how fantastic ice hockey can be for a community, I can’t wait for the Brighton Tigers to return. And I’m sure, when they do, we won’t give them a frosty reception!
Mobile Mills angers disable group Here’s a juicy titbit for you… Further to last week’s news that Hoveresident Heather Mills will be appearing on US show Dancing with The Stars, the Brighton & Hove Federation of Disabled People has expressed outrage that she still retains the blue badge that allows her to park in disabled spaces!

This week, I have some very good news indeed for all you sports fans out there. You would be advised, in the near future, to get your skates on, as legendary ice hockey team the Brighton Tigers will be making their grand return to the city after a forty year absence. For those of you who don’t know, the Brighton Tigers were Brighton’s very own professional ice hockey team, and one of the best sides in the whole country. These guys were big news between 1935 and 1965, when the closure of the Brighton Sports Stadium led to the Tigers’ dissolution. Now, with the imminent creation of the Brighton International Arena down at Black Rock – which will boast two Olympic size ice rinks – it has been announced that the Brighton Tigers will once again take to the ice upon the arena’s completion, bigger and better than ever. I recently took an introductory ice hockey trip to Geneva with David Pople, Chairman of the BIA. David has been advised by ice hockey aficionado Chris McSorley, owner and coach of the GeneveJo, Chris McSorley Servette, over the return of the and Sherkin the eagle Tigers. We met Chris in the opulent surroundings of the Mandarin Oriental hotel, where we were staying with the compliments of the hotel owner Marco Torriani, whose father – in conclusive proof that we are, indeed, living in a very small world – used to play for the Brighton Tigers!

Aussie TV royal eyes up our Pav Dame Edna As some of you may know, the monarchy left our beautiful old Royal Pavilion for the last time in 1845, and it was shortly after sold by the Government to the people of Brighton. But now I hear that an esteemed member of TV royalty has announced her plans to move in to the extravagant palace… and TV might be quite an appropriate word… In a recent interview, housewife superstar Dame Edna Everage made the following comments: “Oh, I adore Brighton! I have a lot of fans down there and I am hoping that the Brighton Pavilion could become my home. There is a chance that I may be purchasing it. I could just see that old palace suiting me down to the ground.” Remember, you heard it here first!

I remember… London Road might be the sort of incredibly depressing dump even a tramp would think twice about walking down these days, but what was it like 70 years ago? Gladys Arrowsmith, 89, reminisces… “My first job was on London Road – at Himmler’s Bakery, where Blockbuster is now. I started there in 1930 when I was 12. I was a ‘pie tin girl’, greasing pie tins from seven in the morning until eight at night, seven days a week for the princely sum of sixpence a month! Of course, in those days you could buy a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost for a shilling, so in real terms I was actually a billionaire. “London Road might be the sort of incredibly depressing dump even a tramp would think twice about walking down these days, but 70 years ago it was ever so gay and charming, with rows and rows of lovely shops like Chelsea Girl, Linney’s, Andy’s Records, Rumbelow’s, Dillon’s, Tie Rack and Games Workshop. “One thing that hasn’t changed much is the Open Market, which has stood where it is for a very long time. Now, people think it’s called the Open Market because it’s not covered, but that’s not the case at all. It was called the Open Market because all the stallholders were actually conducting open relationships; they were all having sex with each other’s husbands and wives. Oh yes – they knew how to have fun in them days. A lot of famous people used to come down to the market to see all this carrying on – Ivor Novello, the Mitford sisters, Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Ron Jeremy, that fat bloke who used to be sidekick to Julian Clary, Drooper from The Banana Splits… “I’m very sad to see the old Co-op go, because that’s where I bought my wedding dress. I remember it like it were yesterday – I stood an age waiting to be served and it was rubbish when I got it. Fell apart as I was walking up the aisle. It’s always been dire that place. They should have closed it down decades ago. I hope they demolish the bastard. “Of course there was one watering hole everyone used to go to in those days – The Hobgoblin. Every Bank Holiday, we’d all put on our Sunday best, neck another handful of pills and go down to Bust The Box on a Bank Holiday to get absolutely pissed on Strongbow. I once got so drunk I went home with three sailors. I must’ve been hammered cause I went downhill skiing on two of ’em, while the other took me up the…” (continued on page 98)

Shall you go on many long voyages Libra? Yes, one a year at the time of Lammas. Take care not to be worn out by storm-tossed seas.
What is the person that you are thinking about doing now Capricorn? He is on a series of mini-breaks with another but will return by Easter.
TAURUS (APR 21–MAY 21)
LEO (JULY 23–AUG 22)
SCORPIO (OCT 23–NOV 21)
AQUARIUS (JAN 20–FEB 19)
The person you are so glad to see, do they think of you, Taurus? Yes! Some pretend friend will try to calumniate you but your ruin is not certain.
May you hope to receive a fortune Leo? That depends on your prudence, but you have a dozen rich rellies who henceforth shall smile upon you.
Ought you to take the first step towards reconciliation? Yes, your merit goes before you, and the majority are awaiting your words of peace.
Shall you receive any unexpected property? Yes! It will be a good source of income should you tend it with care and not let it fall to ruin.
GEMINI (MAY 22–JUNE 21)
VIRGO (AUG 23–SEP 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22–DEC 20)
PISCES (FEB 20–MAR 20)
You shall have several adventures by land and seven by sea, and envious bystanders will have neither teeth, nor hair and will be gouty.
Shall you soon receive the news that you are expecting Virgo? When time is as ripe as the seasons will the news of frequent calms approach.
Ought you to oppose the projects of your husband Saggi? It depends. If you forsake the pleasures of the world, will you regret it?
Ought you to follow the advice given you? That would be a clergyman’s step. Take a rocker and a roller’s step – ask Roy at Bardsley’s.

A laughing matter Victoria Nangle says go forth and find entertainment. It’ll be on every corner this Red Nose Day This Friday is Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day. It’s not like this is likely to be news to any of you at this point, but, rather than dread it like a nasty telethon that steals your favourite Friday night telly, this is a wicked opportunity for creative entertainment. No, I’m not trying to convince you to stay in on a Friday – God forbid! I’m pointing out this is the charity event inextricably linked into comedy – you know, the ha ha stuff – and as such sets the challenge to everybody looking to raise money to think of some way of doing it no one else has ever thought of. And hence we get the most brilliant creativity cropping up all around the cities, with Mega Jenga competing with regular stand-up gigs. One-off fantastic ideas of hilarity – get it where you can find it – are popping up all over the shop asking you to spend your hard-earned hard cash on a great wheeze, which sort of turns your entire city into one big fairground. Stalls and whizz bangs at every corner, cunningly disguised as pubs. Well, East Sussex has never been accused of lacking in the pub department. Such a thing would never be allowed. But with this abundance of drinking holes they really are the central social hub of every street, so all you need to do is wander to the next corner to find the next Red Nose pretty lights.
“One-off fantastic ideas of hilarity are popping up all over the shop asking you to spend your hard-earned hard cash on a great wheeze” The extra cunning wheeze from this, the big secret and the clever subterfuge, is that this leaves these small venues, aka pubs, with an entertainment licence and a taste for the punters and a good show. An excellent opportunity for new comedy nights to crop up. Only last week the Easy Bar by Churchill Square in Brighton started a brand spanking new stand-up comedy night with some top-quality new talent, and more pubs seem to be making enquiries to follow suit. With appetites fully whetted by Red Nose Day comic crowds, and hopefully a hugely stupendous amount of money raised, maybe we’ll be left with fledgling clubs cropping up in the random reaches of cities, towns and villages around East Sussex. Much easier than trying to think of new zany ideas each week. And when they do crop up, give them a chance to find their feet. With new bookers trying to find quality acts that won’t cost the earth so you can enjoy a cheap funny night out things can sometimes go awry. So take advantage of a pub crawl preview. Check ‘em out this Friday and see what tickles your local proprietors’ funny bone. If you like it, it might just become a regular outing.

Marc the vet Paul O’Grady Show’s Marc Abraham asks just how mad is a March hare?
Although not commonly used in today’s language, we have all heard the expression ‘as mad as a March hare’, but what does it mean? The phrase is thought to have been in use since the 16th century but is most famously linked to Lewis Carroll’s children’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It is thought the brown hare was introduced into the UK by the Romans and today it can be found throughout most of Britain. A solitary animal, living in open grassland or arable habitats, easily distinguishable from the smaller rabbit by its size, longer limbs and black-tipped ears. The phrase ‘mad as a March hare’ relates to the odd or eccentric behaviour displayed by hares during the breeding season. The image of a crazed hare rampaging around the countryside in March is the result of popular belief rather than scientific fact. The brown hare’s breeding season is prolonged, lasting from February through to September and during this period adult hares can be seen ‘boxing’ with one another.
“The image of a crazed hare rampaging around is the result of popular belief, not scientific fact” The common misconception is that they are males fighting over the affections of a female, when in fact this ‘mad’ behaviour often occurs as a result of females fending off over-amorous males and can occur any time in the breeding season. Despite this seemingly aggressive courtship display, the female will give birth to three litters with three to four young in each litter, every season. The newborns are known as leverets. The female gives birth to her young in the open, returning after sunset each day to suckle them for a few minutes until they are fully weaned at six weeks old. Regardless of this ability to produce significant offspring the brown hare is not as common as it used to be. The 1960s and 1970s saw a massive decline in the population as a result of intensive agricultural practices and changes in cropping regimes, resulting in the removal of important food sources at vital times of the year. The adult hare is also vulnerable to persecution through shooting, poaching and coursing, and leverets are at risk of attack from predators such as foxes. As a result of this decline the brown hare has been designated a priority species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan which aims to maintain and expand existing populations in the UK. Here in Sussex we are fortunate to have breeding pairs of hares both in East and West Sussex ranging from Pagham Harbour in the west through to Rye Harbour in the east. Sussex Wildlife Trust would like to build a better picture of how the hare is faring and identify the range of its distribution in the county. So if you spot a hare while out and about in the countryside, do get in touch with the Sussex Mammal Recording Group. To report your sightings call 01273 497521 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information on brown hares ring WildCall on 01273 494777. Thanks to Sussex Wildlife Trust for helping me compile this column.

Rocket man Johnny Rocket is in-store this month at Jeremy Hoye, and we take a look at Jeremy’s Tulip range New this month in the Jeremy Hoye store is the edgy designer Johnny Rocket, with his latest collection Pearl D’Conquistador. Johnny is well known for his funky work which embraces a spirit of adventure and tradition. His work has been recognised by many in the fashion industry, and has led to several high profile catwalk collaborations including Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Julien Macdonald. Johnny is the twelfth designer to feature work in Jeremy’s store. Pearl D’Conquistador is a dark, alluring and gothic collection. The range includes a feminine twist on Johnny’s signature Rocket skull, using peacock and black pearls with delicate drops of fine chain to create a sophisticated statement. The necklace shown costs £137.50, a mere snip for a bit of rock ‘n’ roll meets Pirates of the Caribbean! Get yourself down to Jeremy’s shop to take a look at this range – it’s not for the faint-hearted, but it will appeal to a broad range of tastes and is accessible to both men and women. Johnny’s work currently features in two London exhibitions. Harrods celebrate the electric guitar with ‘Harrods Rocks’, its hosting of the ‘Born to Rock – The Life And Times Of The Electric Guitar 1931-2007’, Europe’s largest guitar exhibition, where you can see the customised, silver, Swarovski crystal Fender guitar designed by Johnny. Over the years Johnny has made a number of tour pieces for Kylie Minogue’s live shows which can now be found on display at the Kylie Exhibition at the V&A Museum. Also newly launched this season at Jeremy Hoye is the Tulip collection, perfect for that
springtime gift or marriage proposal. Tulip is an incredibly elegant and contemporary collection. The range includes silver stud and drop earrings set with a selection of semiprecious stones including garnet, amethyst, moonstone and blue topaz. Prices start from £65, so why not treat yourself, a friend or loved one? If it’s bridal jewellery you’re searching for, Jeremy’s shop is a treasure trove of perfect and well priced ideas and the Tulip range is one of them. Hot on the heels of such looks being unveiled at trendsetting fashion weeks across the world, you can also find longer length Tulip necklaces, ideal for that everyday ‘layered’ look, as well as for a dressier style for an evening out. As with all Jeremy’s handmade designs, each piece is unique and the Tulip engagement rings are just this. Individually selected diamonds are mounted in beautiful, sculpted leaves which twirl around the stone; this setting really does show off the diamond and optimises the ‘sparkle’ factor. And of course you’ll be the envy of all your friends! Rings can be designed in 18 carat white, yellow, or rose gold and platinum. If you are looking for a very modern take on the
engagement ring, pass by the shop and browse the black or pink diamond variations in the Tulip range. Jeremy is also always available by appointment to discuss bespoke designs in this range and across his other collections. Jeremy Hoye, 22a Ship Street, Brighton.

Gardner Arts Centre Kindertransport (Fri 23–Sat 24 March, 8pm) Special offer for Mothers’ Day: take your mother to see the play for half price A powerful and moving play about secrets, leaving home and motherdaughter relationships from the Shared Experience company.

Brighton Laser Clinic Of course your mum is beautiful to you, but she may be fed up with the way she looks these days. Perhaps when she looks in the mirror in the morning, those familiar lines from nose to mouth make her look older than she feels.

Or maybe when she’s all done up to go out and puts her lippy on, she sometimes wishes her lips were just a little plumper… If she has ever mentioned these things to you then she might like to try Restylane (www.restylane.com) or Sculptra (www.sculptra.com). These extremely safe and effective dermal fillers have been used worldwide for years.

Foxy Mamma Malone

Malone and her baby endure a dark night of the soul There is always a pay off for having a really good time. Having kids is one of them! Ha! One thing that new parents always ask other new parents is: “Does he sleep through the night?”. At six months old, I’m afraid, er, no. I thought this was normal until the midwife looked appalled and said I needed to make sure I stop the feeds through the night. Okayee. A month ago she said, “If the baby is hungry then feed her,” but now it’s “Don’t feed her”. Make your mind up! So, off I trotted to buy a load of books by experts on sleep training. Using these books as my guide, I tried a few weeks of watering-down the night-time formula feeds until they were nearly non-existent. That worked to a point; I got her down to one feed a night until the only option was to let her ‘cry it out’. ‘Noooo!’ I hear you shout. Well, I don’t care, I’m sick of the crying! Actually, to be fair, the baby doesn’t really cry except for when she’s tired or I’m late with a feed. Or when I start singing Razorlight tunes. But the baby does ‘whinny’, a sound which sort of says, ‘Eehh eeeh, I want something, I want something, I don’t know what, eeeh eeh, just get it quick, eeh ehhh.’ It’s just a nondescript, non-direct whinge, basically. Now, at night this ‘whinnying’ slowly cranks up to full blown crying if I’m not out of my bed and by the cot armed with milk within a five-minute window.
“She was crying and confused as I had taught her that every time she awoke in the night I fed her” Anyhooo, I would like to sleep more than four hours at a time (which is what I have been doing for the past six months) so I decided to let her ‘cry it out’. According to the sleep clinics you should check on them after five, then ten, then every 15 minutes. I felt awful. I kept re-reading the book every time I felt guilty, reminding myself that I needed to sleep properly to be able to care for her. It said in the book that if I buckled, it would actually make it worse as I’d be rewarding the baby for crying, teaching her that however long she cried for I would come eventually. I checked on her every 15 minutes. She was crying and confused as I had taught her that every time she awoke in the night I fed her! Poor thing. It took an hour, but eventually she fell asleep, exhausted! No wonder she wasn’t feeding as much in the day. It was hard but it did only really take one bad night. The next night she cried for ten minutes and she hasn’t cried for food since. Thank gawd! Wooohoooo! I get to sleep all night! But there is always a pay off for a good time: yes she ‘sleeps through the night’, but she wakes at 6am every morning ready for the day! Grrrrrrrr!

Under review Recent shows with a sprinkling of homegrown talent Daniel Kitson Daniel Kitson is what stand-up comedy can and should be. His gags are hidden in such an incredibly relaxed conversational style, that you only know they are there because you are laughing so hard. But he is not one for surreal meanderings; rather he analyses the truths of everyday life and through talking about friends, family and fireworks finds the sublime in the mundane. Despite his awkward outsider pose he concludes by talking about love in a way that has the couples in the audience cuddling up together. Wonderful. Brighton Dome, Mon 26 Feb ✌✌✌✌✌ James Holland Howling Bells Howling Bells started their UK tour in Brighton, and took the stage having just stepped off the 24-hour flight from their native Australia. If jetlag was an issue, it certainly didn’t show. Not that it would matter; their power lies not in battering the crowd with power chords and aggression, but in seducing them with their elegantly crafted, catchy and vaguely sinister indie-pop. And it’s something classy frontwoman Juanita Stein and her bandmates pull off with ease. Highlights included ‘Setting Sun’ and new single ‘Low Happening’, but it’s the fullness and complexity of the whole set that left the audience bewitched. Concorde 2, Sat 24 Feb ✌✌✌✌ Mark Dishman Bless A priest produces a stage show with three of Britain’s most nefarious criminals in the lead roles to demonstrate the power of religion and art to rehabilitate even the most evil of souls. By watching this perfomance, the audience consequently becomes part of the play – quite literally – when the prisoners, who aren’t as rehabilitated as the priest thinks, leap into the auditorium. When kept under control, they re-enact the stories of some of Christianity’s most famous saints, including the tragic tale of John the Baptist told through the medium of contemporary dance. Hilarious physical comedy from Spymonkey once again. Spymonkey @ Gardner Arts Centre, 24 Feb ✌✌✌✌ Joe Curtin Bonnie Prince Billy First UK tour for four years for this king of the underground alt-country scene. Sporting a big unkempt beard, Will Oldham was a much perkier and upbeat soul this time around, which was probably due to him having a band to play with. Although they sounded under-rehearsed at times, they played a spirited set of oldies and songs from the recent album The Letting Go. As usual, the venue’s reverberating acoustics didn’t help to define the songs as heard on record, but tonight, the chattering Oldham was in no mood to let that deflate his uplifting spirit. Corn Exchange, 12 Feb ✌✌✌✌ Jeff Hemmings Jamie T Going to see Jamie-T after purchasing his eagerly-awaited debut album, Panic Prevention, was a much better prospect then spending time crying into a drink due to the lack of Valentine’s cards! Just after 8.30pm, Jamie took to the stage, said his welcome and bang! proceeded to play a punkier, punchier set than the album promises, even motivating a po-go frenzy within the crowd. Interacting like a seasoned pro, he talked about getting black bogies in London followed by a well-deserved rant about Jeremy Kyle. It was then time for the singalong ‘If You Got the Money’ – and there wasn’t a closed mouth in the house. Audio, 14 Feb ✌✌✌✌ Dave Richtor
Asylum Monologues Detention is like a huge grave except you are alive. We are treated like animals: I was handcuffed to see the doctor. They took me through 15 locked doors to put me in a cell at Yarls Wood Detention Centre. I was pushed naked into the van. Laughed at by male officers. Manhandled by male officers. Taken to Colnbrook Detention Centre near Heathrow. There was a camera in the toilets. I did not think people would not believe me when I got here and told them that my people had been killed and I had been tortured. These are real words spoken by totally innocent people in the UK, as recounted in Asylum Monologues. I’m fairly liberal but I was shocked. We say “It can’t happen here” but it already does every day. The national press whip up fears about asylum seekers, almost all totally false. Did you know for instance, that only one in every 200 incomers to the UK is an asylum seeker? Did you know that asylum seekers mainly come from Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iran and Zimbabwe, the very countries which you’d think we would be glad to rescue people from? Did you know that asylum seekers are not allowed to work and that they get £40.22 per week? Did you know that most asylum seekers have no knowledge that there’s a benefit system in the country, before they get here? This play seeks to bust the myths surrounding asylum seekers. The truth is: people who have been tortured or whose families have been murdered, come here. We don’t believe them, we treat them like criminals. We don’t pay them enough to live. We don’t allow them to work and many of them become destitute. They’re also put into detention centres where they are not cared for by kind people but locked up like animals. Anyone remember Germany in the 30s?! Sonja Linden’s play was watched by a full house with people queuing down the road at the Chapel Royal in Brighton – so people do care. And this was no boring worthy production. This was riveting theatre, brilliantly written and acted, simple but superb and true. It must come back to Brighton.

Alternatively you may end up a TOFI (thin on the outside fat on the inside) where although you look thin your internal organs are covered in a layer of fat. Not only does exercising keep your body in good shape it also improves your brain function. So with all these benefits all you have to do is find the right type for you.
Why do it? Exercises are generally grouped into three types depending on the overall effect they have on the human body. Flexibility exercises such as stretching (like that found in yoga poses) improve the range of motion of muscles and joints, aerobic exercises such as walking and running focus on increasing cardiovascular endurance and anaerobic exercises such as weight training, functional training or sprinting increase short-term muscle strength. The best kind of workout will include some of all three – for example 20 minutes running at the gym, 20 minutes weights and a half hour yoga class. But this can be spread over several sessions and there are many forms to chose from – from cycling to dancing to martial arts, exercise classes and even housework!
Pros and cons A regular exercise routine both prevents certain diseases – such as heart disease, cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes – and obesity. Exercise also ensures your current and long term state of health is tip top - from lung capacity and muscle strength to brain power. It does this by increasing the blood and oxygen flow to the brain, increasing growth factors that help create new nerve cells and increasing chemicals in the brain that help cognition. By ensuring you breathe deeply during physical exercise you help the body to increase its maximum lung capacity and oxygen uptake. This results in greater cardiac efficiency, since the heart has to do less work to oxygenate the muscles, and there is also increased muscular efficiency through greater blood flow. You wouldn't jump out of a plane without the right equipment and no training. Likewise a new exercise routine should be accompanied by the right shoes and – if you haven't been active in a while – the OK from your doctor. This will prevent any major negative results associated with a new fitness routine. Many people also start exercising hoping to shift the fat from one specific area. Unfortunately this isn't possible, but all surplus fat will go in time with a dedicated routine. Finally, ensure you rest those muscles – at least a day between workouts –.this will give the muscles time to relax and prevent injury. This way you’ll continue to enjoy a new, fitter, you.

ANDREW KAY’S FOOD&DRINK
Oopsy dosai Andrew Kay feels the heat but not the cost at Spice Land in Croydon I have never really worried about reviewing far afield in this space. From what readers tell me, they are happy to hear about restaurants some distance away, and in the food survey that we ran last year a surprisingly high number of you said you would drive over 50 miles in the pursuit of good food. Which is why I am going to tell you about a restaurant in Croydon. I had to be in London to give a lecture at Kingston University. Afterwards I knew that, without local knowledge, I would struggle to find a local restaurant that would thrill me, and I was certainly in no mood for any of the plethora of chain joints that confronted me. I hopped in the car and headed for Croydon where I knew that the large Asian community was bound to throw up a good range of ethnic eateries. I had seen before southern Indian on offer and, unlike the provinces, Indian restaurants here advertise their regional diversity. Eventually I spotted Spice Land. It was a shiny, glowing, café-style restaurant with Melamine tables and chrome chairs and that eerie blue light that is so popular but makes your food look odd. What drew me though was the promise of Sri Lankan and southern Indian dishes.
Cheers Look what landed on my desk this month I’m not going to lie, this job has its perquisites (thank you Cheeky Boys), and this month a parcel arrived containing three rather nice bottles. A bottle of Piper Heidsieck is always welcome (it’s never too early for champagne), and this award-winning stuff went down a treat simply chilled. Look out for the new Jaime Hayon-designed champagne essentials too, created to match the rich red branding, and also for the individual-sized bottles that come complete with a straw! Second out of the box was Galliano. Now, no cocktail cabinet should be without this classy yellow vanilla and aniseed liqueur – it’s an essential ingredient in so many classic cocktails – but I have now discovered that on a couple of cubes of ice it makes a rather good digestif. Finally there was a bottle of Passoá, a liqueur made with passion fruit. Not an essential is my verdict, but not half bad. I added a shot to a screwdriver and it gave it a carnival feel. A splash over a pavlova with passion fruit and raspberries was a far better result and the pink colour was a real hit.
Passionate about property, fanatical about food 59 Church Road, Hove 01273 735237 www.callaways.co.uk
‘‘It was a shiny, glowing, café-style restaurant with Melamine tables and that eerie blue light that is so popular but makes your food look odd’’ The front area was packed with lads in uniform grey trakkies and hoodies. It could have been intimidating but I braved a path through and they were ever so polite. I needed a beer and one arrived in a trice. The menu was complex in that it was clearly designed for people who knew what the dishes were, and not for thrill-seeking interlopers. I simply asked for explanations, and got them. The ‘thair vadai’ was thankfully the dish that I know as dahi vadai, lentil doughnuts in yoghurt with spices and salad. These came peppered with torn curry leaves and were huge. Still, I polished them off as they are a real favourite of mine. I added a portion of chicken tikka – I really wanted prawns but they had sold out. What arrived from the starter menu was huge, way bigger than a Brighton-and-Hove main course, six fat chunks of excellent succulent and sizzling orange meat, dotted with charred bits. I’m afraid it was too big for me to finish. That, in part, could be to do with my mutton masala dosai. I love dosais because the process of fermenting pounded rice and lentils overnight gives them a delicious and slightly malty note. This one came stuffed with tender hunks of mutton and soft spicy potato and was gargantuan. The helpful waiter asked me how spicy I would like it and I suggested medium, which it was. Well, medium to hot really. It arrived on a silver charger on which there were also three types of chutney, a green coconut paste that was fairly mild, a red paste that was devilishly hot and a sweet and fiery dry coconut dressing which was amazing. There was also a bowl of sambar. Sambar is a spicy gravy, in this case with fat slices of dried birds-eye chilli lurking menacingly in its depths. The lager downed I ordered a mango lassi to finish – a drink and a pudding all in one. So how much for this feast? Sit down, it was £11.90. Yes, under twelve quid for a massive meal and a pint of decent lager. I nearly fell off my chair. The dosai was only £3.50, the tikka £3, the thair vadai £1.50, so £8 for food and £3.90 on drinks. I left a massive tip because the service was great, the food brilliant and the price quite frankly extraordinary. On the way back to the car I wept at the knowledge that I cannot eat like this close to home. Spiceland, 212 London Road, Croydon, 0208 667 1700 22 latest 7

What’s cooking this week? The Cheesemonger’s Tales Of People And Places, Cheeses And Wines Arthur Cunynghame Cheesemonger and wine merchant Arthur Cunynghame takes us on a virtual tasting tour in this delightful read, exploring cheese dairies and vineyards, with a unique insight provided by his 30 years’ experience. While many of us may serve cheese and wine for friends, how many actually find the right balance between the cheese and the wine? Their strength and flavour should always be equal without one overpowering the other. Keeping this in mind, Cunynghame offers a fantastic guide to serving different cheeses and wines, along with the essentials of a good serving. This includes a cheeseboard, good knives and accompanying pickles and chutneys – a personal favourite find of Cunynghame’s being mandarin marmalade and Celtic Promise. Discover the tastes of France and Italy, as experienced on the author’s travels, ending with ‘The Quintessential British Cheese.’ A guide that no cheese lover should be without! Zara Friend
Wines to go with cheeses Hard mild cheeses such as Wensleydale and Cheshire go well with many white wines such as a Sancerre, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay; and light, fruity reds such as Beaujolais or other Gamay wines. Hard mature cheeses such as Cheddar and Gruyére go well with fuller whites such as Viognier or Gewurztraminer, sweet whites such as a Quart de Chaume or medium reds such as a bold Cabernet Franc, Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft cheeses such as Brie de Meaux and Camembert are especially good with Red Burgundies or other Pinot Noir wines, Cabernet Franc wines from the Loire like Chinon and the lighter fortified wines such as a ten year old Tawny Port. Blue cheeses such as Stilton, Fourme d’Ambert, Gorgonzola and Roquefort find natural partners in most sweet wines especially Sauternes, full bodied reds such as Barlo, and fortified wines, especially Vintage Port.

Also showing... A quick look at all this week’s releases Arthur And The Invisibles (U) Dir: Luc Besson French maverick Besson finally loses it with this lavish but flawed kiddies’ flick telling the story of elves and humans living in harmony with nature. Sentimental and occasionally trite this is a poor addition to an already bloated collection of work by Besson. (2/5) Showing at Cineworld Babel (15) Dir: Alejandro González Iñárritu The new film from Amores Perros director Iñárritu follows three seemingly separate stories of tragedy, love and death. Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett may bring some Hollywood glitz but it’s the relative unknowns Mohamed Akhzam and Rinko Kikuchi who shine the brightest. It may not have cleaned up at the recent Oscar ceremony but it’s exceptional cinema nonetheless. (4/5) Showing at Worthing Cinema from 13 March Charlotte’s Web (U) Dir: Gary Winick A new adaptation of EB White’s classic story sees Dakota Fanning (of War Of The Worlds fame) star alongside the voice talents of Julia Roberts and Oprah Winfrey. A faithful rendering but sickly sweet. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Ghost Rider (12A) Dir: Mark Steven Johnson Another Marvel big screen adaptation; another sloppy mess. Nicholas Cage plays stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze who gives up his soul to become a hellblazing vigilante in a battle against Blackheart, the son of Satan. It may indeed be big, brash and bold but it’s also blatantly been in production hell for some time and feels dated and tired. (2/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Hot Fuzz (15) Dir: Edgar Wright Superb new offering from the Shaun of the Dead crew. This time it’s the turn of the local bobby to get the comic actioner treatment. The last half hour may struggle to sustain the initial brilliance displayed but this is still a cut above the usual comic fare. Essential viewing for all. (4/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Inland Empire (15) Dir: David Lynch The new film from Lynch finds him in playful mood as he recounts the tale of actress Laura Dern who plays an actress playing an actress. Confusion is everywhere but so too is beauty, invention, and an oddly subtle comic touch. Lynch may have carved out his own chaotic niche but with Inland Empire he seems to have found a new and fragrant path. (4/5) Showing at Duke of Yorks Little Children (15) Dir: Todd Field A much overlooked gem, Little Children tells the story of a group of young married couples living in suburbia amidst a backdrop of infidelity, betrayal and lust. Kate Winslet may be the A-lister but it’s Patrick Wilson who steals the show. (3/5) Showing at Odeon on 13 March Little Miss Sunshine (15) Dir: Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris One of the sweetest films to come out for a while, this classic ensemble piece follows a dysfunctional family as they take their daughter to a beauty pageant. The script is tight and wry, as are the pitch perfect performances from Steve Carroll and Oscar winner Alan Arkin. Greg Kinnear as the loser Dad is superb while ten year old Abigail Breslin manages to avoid cloying sentimentality and deliver a truly touching
performance. Only the cruelest of cynics would dare to frown. (4/5) Showing at Odeon on 15 March Miss Potter (PG) Dir: Chris Noonan A soft centred biopic of children’s author Beatrix Potter. Renée Zellweger plays Potter with another pristine English accent. Ewan McGregor, with a truly impressive moustache, stars as Potter’s love interest. while the ever dependable Emily Watson adds a touch of class as the forgotten wife. Despite the central performances the script is slushy and the sentiment cloying. (2/5) Showing at Worthing Cinema from 18 March Music And Lyrics (PG) Dir: Marc Lawrence Hugh Grant plays a struggling songwriter who enlists the help of Drew Barrymore to write a pop song. Trite, crude, and embarrassing, this is a new low for the dapper Grant. Less a film and more an opportunity to parade the insensible and vain machinations of modern Hollywood. (2/5) Showing at Cineworld and Odeon Night At The Museum (PG) Dir: Shawn Levy This joyfully bloated film follows security guard Ben Stiller, who accidentally unleashes a curse that brings the Natural History Museum – dinosaurs and all – to life. Crammed in among the special effects are Dick Van Dyke, Robin Williams, Steve Coogan, and Ricky Gervais. A wilfully dumb indulgence that deserves a hearty bite. (3/5) Showing at Duke of Yorks on 17 March Notes On A Scandal (15) Dir: Richard Eyre Adapted from the superb Zoe Heller novel this film tells the story of wispy, hippy-ish teacher Cate Blanchett who enters into an affair with a 15-year-old pupil. Excellent performances from all, with a brittle and raw display from Judi Dench. At times genuinely unnerving this is a desperate and ruthless display of love gone sour. (4/5) Showing at Cineworld Stranger Than Fiction (12A) Dir: Marc Forster An IRS auditor (Will Ferrel) suddenly finds himself the subject of narration only he can hear. Emma Thompson plays the author unwittingly dictating Ferrell’s life while a suitably craggy Dustin Hoffman plays his shrink. The script from Zach Helm is refreshingly inventive and brings a gentle humour to an often surprising film. (4/5) Showing at Duke of Yorks on 14 March The Prestige (12A) Dir: Christopher Nolan This lavish tale of two feuding magicians in turn of the century England is an odd but effective follow up to Batman Begins for wellrespected director Nolan. Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale pull the rabbits out of the hat as the rival magicians while Michael Caine and David Bowie deliver a much needed injection of experience. The script may twist and turn but this still remains a deft display of cinematic nerve. (3/5) Showing at Cineworld on 13 March The Number 23 (15) Dir: Joel Schumacher Paranoia gets the MTV treatment in this visually flashy thriller. Jim Carrey takes on another serious role, playing a man who becomes obsessed with the number 23. The premise may be quirky and interesting but the film remains a trashy example of Schumacher’s wildly egotistical and debauched world view. (2/5) howing at Cineworld and Odeon
L7 lowdown The prince of pain New releases reviewed
The Illusionist (PG)
Director Neil Burger Set in turn-of-the-century Vienna, a magician, played by Edward Norton, uses his abilities to secure the love of a woman far above his social standing. Much like the recent The Prestige, the film uses historical setting to add a sway of authenticity and intrigue to proceedings. Paul Giamatti adds able support alongside Jessica Biel. It is Rufus Sewell, though, who steals the show with his pantomime villain performance as Crown Prince Leopold. Adapted from Steven Millhauser’s short story Eisenheim The Illusionist this is a lavish and enjoyable treat. Craig Driver Showing at Duke of Yorks, Cineworld, and Odeon
Becoming Jane (PG)
Director Julian Jarrold An oddly saccharine biopic of Jane Austen that chooses to focus on her youth just prior to her literary fame. The Devil Wears Prada star Anne Hathaway struggles to bring any conviction to the role of a young Austen and the script, littered with sentiment and cloying melodrama, fails to do justice to the life and literature of Austen. An able and experienced supporting cast of Dame Maggie Smith, Julie Walters and James McAvoy add some degree of authenticity but still fail to create anything more than a feeble portrait of a literary great. Showing at Cineworld, Odeon and Worthing Cinema
Director Guillermo Del Toro This first full length feature film from Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth director Del Toro is a brash and sometimes grotesque film. It tells the story of an alchemist who, in 1535, builds an extraordinary mechanism encapsulated into a small golden device. The invention, designed to convey eternal life to its owner, survives its maker until 1997 when it finds its way to an antiquarian. Part vampire horror and part philosophical thriller, this is the first of three films being shown at Duke of Yorks in a Del Toro season celebrating the Mexican director. Showing at Duke of Yorks on 16 March
Director Brian Robbins Being perhaps the sole reason Eddie Murphy didn’t win the coveted Best Support Actor award at the recent Oscars, this is a mad and chaotic comic mess. Murphy plays three different characters including an extremely obese woman and her nerdy beau to be. Coming off like Big Momma’s House only, dare I say it, with less laughs, this is unadulterated cinematic slush. The fact that Murphy can double this up with his truly impressive performance in Dreamgirls makes you question the merit of his decision making process. Loud, fat, crude and vile, this is cinema at its most wasteful and indulgent. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon
Garth Twa looks back over the career and life of famed Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini
On 2 November, 1975, after having completed his final movie Salo, Or The 120 Nights of Sodom, Pier Paolo Pasolini was found brutally mutilated in a vacant lot, having been repeatedly run over by his own car. A hustler named Pino ‘The Frog’ Pelosi was tried for the murder. It was dismissed as an S&M tryst, one that involved sodomy and a large piece of wood, that had gone wrong. At the trial, the defence lawyer said, in essence, ‘This was the man who made Salo. He deserved to die.’ Pasolini was denounced, imprisoned, and his films were banned. A radical homosexual, Marxist, and fiercely atheist, every film he made was political and deeply personal. ‘Either I’ll kill the world or the world will kill me,’ as one of his characters says. His early films show his NeoRealist roots. The slum milieu of Accattone and Mama Roma (1962) and his use of largely non-professional actors reflect his devotion to the sub-proletariat and his disgust for the bourgeoisie. ‘Everything the bourgeoisie do is sh*t,’ he wrote; ‘a member of the bourgeoisie, whatever he does, is wrong.’ In Teorema (1968) a mysterious Christ-like figure played by Terrence Stamp insinuates himself into a bourgeois family and has sex with the entire family, including the maid, destroying their middle-class complacency (the son becomes an action painter, the maid begins to levitate and is eventually buried alive, and the father disappears up the side of a smoking volcano). The film was seized for obscenity at Venice Film Festival. La Ricotta, part of Ro.Go.Pa.G (1963), is a film about an unemployed worker working as an extra in a crucifixion movie (Orson Welles played the director) who steals food from the set to feed his family. He overdoses on ricotta and actually dies on the cross while the producer is entertaining upper class guests at a banquet. Pasolini was arrested for blasphemy. In Porcile (1969), Pasolini dealt with the lives of two ex-Nazi businessmen, one who has a son who can only make love to pigs, and is eventually eaten by them. This is intercut with episodes about cannibals in the 15th century, which climaxes with the cannibals being fed to dogs. In the late 1960s, he turned to fable and myth, achieving his greatest success with The Trilogy of Life: Decameron (1971), Canterbury Tales (1972), and Arabian Nights (1974), where he celebrates human sexuality as a means of undermining middle-class values. These were bawdy, lewd and rife with nymphomaniac nuns and lingering close-ups on bulges in leather thongs. They even spawned a mini-genre of cheap knock-offs, including such titles as Decameron Sinners, Hot Nights of Decameron, and A Million and One Nights of Boccaccio and Canterbury. His masterpiece however, is Salo. Based on the work of de Sade and transplanted into the puppet regime of Mussolini at the end of WW II, it is a brutal and horrific excoriation of fascism and consumerism. Salo is notorious for its sensational aspects, banquets of human faeces, an orgy of degradation, flesh as meat, but Pasolini’s true genius – and the film’s true horror – lies in his ability to make the most morally and physically reprehensible behaviour mundane. It remains Pasolini’s most complete display. Pino The Frog recently recanted his confession. There was no sodomy, with or without a large piece of wood. He said he was forced to confess, that his family would be killed if he did not. Bertolucci, who worked as an assistant on Accattone, always maintained that it had been a political assassination: ‘The fact is that by killing him, they gagged him. As if someone had decided to shut him up forever.’ Any filmmaker worth killing is a filmmaker worth exploring. The Pasolini Boxset: Vol. 1 is out now from Tartan Video Pasolini on set
Director Nick Love From the man behind the thuggish charm of Football Factory and The Business comes this new Nick Love film. A group of people who feel betrayed by their government and let down by their police force form a modern-day outlaw posse in order to right what they see as the wrongs of society. A suitably gruff Sean Bean heads up the vigilante group while Love regular Danny Dyer adds some cheeky wit and a beardy Bob Hoskins pops up as an informant. This is sensationalist cinema that relies on the current political climate in order to sell tickets. Crass but effective. Showing at Cineworld and Odeon latest 7 27
THE BIG GIG
THIS WEEK Electric Six The band formed in 1996 in Detroit and was initially known as The Wildbunch, eventually dropping that name due to pressure from the Bristol trip hop collection of the same name (who, of course, went on to become Massive Attack). Part of the scene that produced acts such as White Stripes, their highenergy trashy mix of disco, synth pop, glam and arena rock came to fruition with the unexpected success of Danger! High Voltage. Subsequent single ‘Gay Bar’ was also a smash. Since then, they have struggled to maintain the momentum despite a couple of excellent albums. Tues 13 Mar, Engine Room, Brighton, 01273 728999
Mingus Big Band The 14-piece Mingus Big Band keeps alive the legacy of Charles Mingus, one of jazz music’s true pioneers. This show is part of Brighton Festival. Wed 23 May, Brighton Dome, 01273 709709
Latest 7’s Top 5 records The Rakes Ten New Messages (album V2) Outstanding second album from these Brighton-based kids. Full of energising indie rock tunes with an understated and sometimes playful approach. While the previous album expressed themes of working life, mundane routines and escapism, the new album is a much more rounded, mature and literate affair. Melodic punk and new wave sounds of yesteryear are blindingly apparent, but there are some interesting diversions including Suspicious Eyes which brings vocalists Laura Marlin, Phil Morais and rapper Raxstar into the fray, performing on this overtly political tune.
The Sounds Dying To Say This To You (album Korova) Re-release for this Swedish new-wave influenced outfit with a sexy lead singer, synth-driven tunes and spiky lyrics. Stupid but infectious.
Dub Pistols Speakers and Tweeters (album Sunday Best) Return to the fray for this dub punk, rock ’n’ roll duo, who have enlisted the help of Rodney P Blade, Terry Hall and various friends to make an album full of electro beats, tweaks and dubtastic feats.
Babylon’s Burning: The Rough & Ready Rise of Punk-Rawk Various (album Sanctuary) A thorough and essential history of US and UK pre-punk and the phenomenon of punk itself, including a few tasty live recordings by some of the biggest names including Sex Pistols, The Damned and Dr Feelgood.
Steve Hillage Green (album Virgin) The quintessential hippie and still plying his trade with System 7, has his legendary back catalogue re-released including this gem from 1978.
A three-piece from Sheffield, they have a similar style musically and lyrically to local contemporaries such as Arctic Monkeys and Milburn – weaving tales of the highs and lows of everyday life, but told in an engaging storytelling manner by main man Tim Hampton, as can be heard on their last album Dits From the Commuter Belt. Occasionally harder, heavier and more distorted than their peers, theirs is a raw early punk/American hardcore sound, but with plenty of amusing lyrics. Thurs 15 Mar, Concorde 2, Brighton, 01273 673311
Geno Washington You should all know by now that Dexys Midnight Runners’ ‘Geno’ hit was about this man, one of the hardest-working pensioners on the circuit! Originally he came over as part of the US Air Force, and after persuading Georgie Fame to give him a spot, he quickly established himself as one of the most successful soul acts in the UK, releasing two of the biggest-selling albums of the 1960s, both live recordings. His style? Well, the beat is insistent, Geno can’t stop imploring the audience to get on down, and the crowd go crazy for his distinctive brand of high energy, and very groovy soul music. We have Dexys to thank for his revival, as by the 1970s he had pretty much given up with music. Now he’s constantly recording, putting out new material and generally having a wail of a time. Fri 16 Mar, Komedia, Brighton, 01273 647100
The Sounds Swedish glam new wavers who have achieved a considerable degree of success and celebrity in Sweden and America, but still trying to break the UK market. Why is that? Well, they don’t shy away from going for the groin in exploiting lead singer Myra Inversson’s rampant sexuality and long legs, and their videos are exercises in 80s vanity and visual romps. yes we loved Duran Duran but there was a certain cheesiness in there. That’s all we want – a bit more humour and sophistication to go with our cheesy smut. That’s all! Mon 19 Mar, Pressure Point, Brighton, 01273 702333

THE MONTH AHEAD
A weekly round-up of what’s happening in the local Brighton and Sussex music scene Kingsomniac
After a couple of self-released singles, The Mojo Fins (Thurs 15 Mar, Sussex Arts Club) have upped the ante by signing to the local Amazon Records label, who will be releasing ‘Pinata Face’ in April. This atmospheric, melodic four-piece have a nice nu-folk sound. Also on the bill are Sooks and the infectiously cheeky La Frange. The Mojo Fins Four-piece band Kingsomniac (Tues 13 Mar, Joogleberry) are a brilliant live band, taking their cue The Bobby McGee’s from the frenetic rhythms of punkfunk, and distilling it via The Strokes. Upbeat, humorous and very good indeed. New stuff is in the pipeline, as are record label deals. Also on the bill are the self-proclaimed Pink Floyd meets The Cure four-piece Educated Animals. Either you love ’em or hate ’em – The Bobby McGee’s (Fri 16 March, The Hope) unleash their insidious brand of hilarious tweecore that carries a sheath knife among the instrumentation; a sample lyric from ‘Please Don’t Dump Me’ is “I will hunt you down, and kill you in your bed”. Jimmy, G RO55 and Tallulah (gosh!) play ukulele, melodica, double bass, balalaika, xylophone, jews harp and much else besides. Also on this bill for local fanzines The New Wave of Cut & Paste night are other lo-fi, anti-folk and generally weird gems like The Unicorns!?, David House and The Cut-Offs. Expect a single on Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best label any day soon from The Hat (Thurs 15 March, Brunswick), an inventive and invigorating four piece who have built up a large following here in Brighton. Comprising a vocal-scratching drummer, a trombone-wielding double bassist, a storytelling guitarist and a multi-instrumentalist with a world of children’s toys at his disposal, they mix stories with pop hooks, gospel style harmonies and cinematic live music.

Bryan Ferry Oh, yes. The arch 1970s glam crooner has gone back to one of his first loves – Bob Dylan. His new album Dylanesque is a collection of some of his favourite Zimmerman songs, including ‘Tom Thumb’s Blues’, ‘Positively 4th Street’, and ‘The Times They Are A-Changin’’, all performed rock solidly and with a few interesting changes in tempo. In a way, he’s come full circle because his first ever hit as a solo artist back in 1973 (in those days, like now, he had a concurrent solo career alongside Roxy Music) was Dylan’s ‘A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall’. Still immaculately coiffeured and groomed he is infamous for his meticulous preparations whether in the studio or at home, and despite a wayward son or two (Otis, who was heavily involved in the pro fox-hunting movement of recent times) and experiencing a horrific attempted hijacking episode on a plane a few years ago, Ferry is back, looking good, and sounding great. Tues 20 Mar, Brighton Dome, 01273 709709
My Chemical Romance Massively popular, and somewhat controversial, these American theatrical hardcore punks, led by the Germanic blond boy looks of Gerard Way, are named after an Irvine Welsh novel Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance. Formed in the aftermath of the Twin Towers attack (which Gerard witnessed), the band built up a following through free downloads, MySpace and other social networking sites, backed up with three albums, the latest of which The Black Parade, made number two in the American Billboard charts. Influenced by British rock (Queen, Iron Maiden and Pink Floyd) and American punk, their heavy use of horror and comic-book imagery has seen them being criticised for negativity and dourness to such an extent that Kerrang! recently voted them the Best Band and the Worst band of 2006!

New releases, classic comedy and chilling stories – get your hands on these great prize giveaways!
Please introduce yourself…
Borat DVD Now available to buy and rent on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan – but you’ll be forgiven for not remembering the whole film title! Starring Sacha Baron Cohen (Ali G to most!) this hilarious comedy is not to be missed. Funnier than the cinema outing, the DVD is packed with extras including deleted scenes, publicity tour footage and more!
Hello people, this is Longusto. Born and bred as a yellow-bellied Lincolnite, now residing in sunny Brighton and loving every minute of life by the seaside!
To be in with a chance of winning one of two copies send an email to email@example.com with Borat in the subject box. Please nclude your name and contact details. Entrants must be aged over 15.
As a rapper, what attracted you to Brighton?
T-shirt goody bags
Well, I could talk about the unbelievably high standard of musicians down here and how I wanted to expand myself both as a person and an artist; but if the truth be told, someone told me it was the gay capital of the country so I figured there must be a higher ratio of single women who were on the lookout for stunningly attractive men such as myself, so I packed my bags.
How does the scene differ to Lincoln's? Lincoln didn’t really have a hiphop scene. In Lincoln there’s only a handful of people doing hip hop, and even then they’re not doing anything very often. My mates were more into different music; house and whatnot, whereas now I am surrounded by people who like doing what I like doing.
Tell us about Swampfoot... Swampfoot was formed six years ago by myself and Weaver – one of the best producers in the country. We started making tracks together and they sounded good, so we made some more. Then our mates brought their skills to the table – Dimes on the decks, Dr Badfunk the human beatbox extraordinaire, Mani providing his smooth vocal melodies and MC Bones as hypeman. We’ve done loads of shows, and setting up a bit of a mini tour for later in the year, which no doubt will hit the road in 2008 if our previous organisational skills are anything to go by! It all gets a bit harder when you’re 200 miles apart; long-distance relationships take a lot more work.
Didn’t you have an album out recently? We did indeed, titled This Way And That. We haven’t released it fully yet – that’s what we’ll be pushing on our tour – but it’s available from our websites or from iTunes, so everyone should go buy a copy after they’ve finished reading this. Truly, do it. It’s the best album in the world, ever.
Any interesting collaborations in the pipeline? Yeah, I’ve had my begging bowl out when it comes to collabs. A few nice people have taken pity on me, or maybe it’s just that they’re too scared to say no. Either way, it’s all going on the mixtape I’m working on while I’m down here, which I’m calling Back In The Bad Books. Crossing a palm near you this year or next…
What are your plans for this year? Carrying on writing, working and getting wasted, pretty much the same plan as the past ten years. Only difference now is that I’ve got a clean slate to tarnish.

THIS WEEK AND THE MONTH AHEAD 22nd Birthday @ The Zap If there’s one thing promoters love, it’s an anniversary. Two years on? Door takings down? Looks like it’s time for another birthday. But the Zap is different. A true original that’s just as likely to be name-checked by Hanif Kureishi as Bobby Gillespie, it’s been central to Brighton’s nightlife for nearly a quarter of a century now. Tonight is history in the making, so turn up for a selection of DJs old and new and raise a glowstick to the grand old Queen of Brighton clubbing. Gawd bless you ma’am. 16 March, £15/14
Ben Watt @ Stompa Phunk A goth noodler turned deep houser, converted after seeing the strobe lights via a globe-straddling remix of Missing, Ben Watt is set to take on Audio this Saturday. Now that the world in general has come around to deep house (except it’s now called minimal – do try to keep up) there’s no better time to watch one of the skinniest DJs in the universe knock out some twitchy jacking house – no doubt delving into his Buzzin’ Fly back catalogue for some exclusive rerubs... 17 March, £8/7
Da Do Ron Ron @ Sussex Arts Club Sisters are doing it for themselves yet again at this soon-to-be-legendary femme-tastic throw down featuring the best retro tunes from the likes of Diana Ross upwards. More than your average 60s soiree, this is a chance to twirl on the SAC dancefloor to some of the best femalefronted music on the planet. And no we don’t mean Girls Aloud. 17 March, £6/5
ETCH Live @ Concorde 2 OK, so it’s more of a gig than a club night – but to be honest, indie label Tru Thoughts are so steeped in the city’s club culture it’d be pretty churlish to make the distinction. Emanating the kind of warm, soulful vibes that many thought were made illegal after 1975, Alice Russell is a formidable front woman performing party-starting blues and funk that’ll force you to move your feet. DJ support comes from Robert Luis, while those seeking later thrills should stick around and enhance the fuzzy glow with breaks from Supercharged. 31 March, £12
★ Latest 7 goes for a drink at the Saltdean Tavern After moving away from the small coastal town of Newhaven to Hove, Brighton Marina and Saltdean are the places I meet with my nearest and dearest from Newhaven, as it’s the middle ground for us travelwise. That’s not to mean we would meet in the middle of nowhere just because it happened to suit us both in getting there – Saltdean and the marina are ideal with their variety of bars and restaurants. Calmer than the middle of Brighton, meeting up for a drink after work is easy at The Spanish Lady (off the mini roundabout heading to Saltdean shops) and The Saltdean Tavern (found behind Saltdean Lido off the main road). With a large free car-park, Saltdean Tavern is easily accessible and extremely spacious. Once inside the main doors, the long bar lays directly ahead with seating off to both sides. With large individual comfy chairs to sink into, the vast pub is a great place to meet for a chat or for a group night out. A weekly quiz night is also held there and a delicious menu sits on each table, tempting you to the tasty puddings on offer and the great value carvery. Bright, cheerful and spacious, plus great value gives the Saltdean Tavern two deserved thumbs up. Zara Friend The Saltdean Tavern, Saltdean Park Road, Saltdean BN2 8SP, 01273 304614

“We hoped that we had the ability to remain independent,” said Simon Rushton, acting chair of BBP. “But funding is so tight and although we were doing lots of fundraising, lots of other organisations are fundraising as well.” BBP says that it hopes its services will be absorbed into the services of other charities and the NHS.
English as a foreign, and gay, language A school for gay students wanting to learn English is opening up in Soho this month. ‘English in London’s Soho’ in Old Compton Street will offer adult English as a Foreign Language course (EFL) with a gay flavour. “Travelling abroad to learn a new language can be quite daunting and the school will mean that gay students will feel more comfortable knowing that they can learn in a gay-friendly environment and meet other gay students,” says Andy Cossey, principal of the new school. Lessons structured around different topics like film, music, media and lifestyle will reflect gay contributions.

Festive Great theatre and opera in the Brighton Festival 2007 season
Approaching my 21st Brighton Festival I am thrilled to see that the drama and opera offerings are stronger than ever. I love the Festival and the diversity of the programme. Each year always throws up a major high spot and in recent years I have been stunned on several occasions by site-specific works, notably Underground which took place in a reversed Theatre Royal. So when presented with this year’s programme I was thrilled to find that the whole concept of site-specific performances has been seized upon. My eyes are first drawn to Genet and The Maids in a new translation and staging by Neil Bartlett. Bartlett is up there as one of the most exciting and innovative theatre creatives of the last 30 years, and to be having this world premiere production is a major coup for the festival and for the city. The Maids is a dark tale set behind the scenes in a hotel. Genet based his play on the infamous Papin sisters, Lea and Christine, who brutally murdered their employer and her daughter in Le Mans, France, in 1933. Solange and Claire, the two housemaids, construct sadomasochistic rituals about her death when madame is away. More than just author-director, Bartlett adds an udeniable extra dimension to everything he touches.
Harold Pinter holds a similar position in British theatre in terms of prominence and The New World Order, his play about power and democracy, will be staged in the cells beneath and the council chamber above in Brighton’s old Town Hall. Stripping back the conventional theatre production of this play, the company hope to take Pinter back to his ‘muscular roots’. The Maids, 11 May 2007 to 26 May 2007 at 9.15pm, Old Ship Hotel, £15 Most excitingly there is to be a promenade performance of Verdi’s La Traviata by the extraordinary Ensemble Musica a Palazzo. As their title might suggest, this will take place, by very special and extraordinary permission, in The Royal Pavilion. The company, drawn from the famous La Fenice theatre in Venice perform an intimate version of this tragic romance accompanied by a string trio and piano. Given the small nature of the venue these could easily become the hottest tickets in the festival. La Traviata, Ensemble Musica a Palazzo, 5 May 2007 to 10 May 2007 at 7.30pm, Royal Pavilion, £45 More excellent opera too, this time at the Dome where a semi-staged version of Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell will take place. This new production includes previously lost material that was included in the 1700 commercial expansion of the original 1680s version. The new production will reinstate Dido and Aeneas as a full-length opera and the orchestra will play on period instruments in this prom-style production in the Dome. Dido & Aeneas 1700, Philip Pickett with New London Consort, 16 May 2007 at 8.00pm, Concert Hall, Tickets £25, £20, £15, proms £7.50
Across the way at The Theatre Royal there’s more Purcell to be had in another world premiere production of King Arthur. This time fully staged, the setting has been moved to the First World War and great things are expected from Armonico Consort who last year thrilled with their Fairy Queen complete with lunatic and lunar acrobatics. King Arthur – Armonico Consort, 17 May 2007 at 7.30pm, Theatre Royal Brighton, £22.50, £15, £10, £5 The same company will also be giving us their Magic Flute in a production styled on the jungle imagery of Henri Rousseau and using once more their signature high-wire antics and puppetry. The Magic Flute was Mozart’s first venture into commercial theatre, a bit like him writing Guys and Dolls, so there should be plenty of room for width and invention which is no doubt what you will get with a new translation by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. The Magic Flute – The Armonico Consort, 18 May 2007 to 19 May 2007 at 7.30pm, Theatre Royal, Brighton, £26, £22, £18, £15, £6. The Brighton Festival runs from 5–27 May, for full details of programme pick up a brochure or log on to www.brightonfestival.org, or ring the box office on 01273 709709

Stand-up for kids Comedy Club 4 Kids at Komedia hits the spot, writes Candy MacNamara My comedy friend Vicky said I should take my kids to the Comedy Club 4 Kids at Komedia. Billed as stand-up comedy without the naughty bits, I decided to give it a go with four kids, aged 9-11, on a Saturday lunchtime. Now, this age group isn't easily entertained. They have sophisticated tastes and expectations, combined with a short attention span. This looked like a general problem with an audience who were noisy, even by comedy standards. Much chattering, shouting, rustling and munching was going on – and that was just the parents. Vicky was right; I loved it, my kids loved it, their friend loved it. Yes, the audience continued to be noisy but the energetic compere, Matt Kirshen, was absolutely brilliant at handling a crowd whose main idea of heckling was to go to the toilet – a lot. He maintained the discipline of the set while clearly in touch with his inner ten-year old. Matt held it all together, keeping energy levels up even after a first act whose characters were slightly at odds with the audience. I don’t advise jokes about DSS offices or Brighton characters for an audience of pre-teens – though they listened politely enough until Matt bounded back on to charm and amuse with his mad stories. There was an interval – got to keep up with all that toilet-going – with the (major) bonus of free soft drinks. Headliner Stu Goldsmith finished off with a set which hit the spot perfectly. Intelligent, laugh-out-loud stand up at the right level for the audience and quite frankly, eye candy to boot. Highly recommended but book early. Comedy Club 4 Kids, Saturday 6 April, 2pm, Komedia. There is also a Comedy Academy 4 Kids at Komedia.
THIS WEEK’S PREVIEWS The Muller Big Art Project for Comic Relief This year’s Red Nose Day theme is ‘The Big One’ and this Wednesday 14 March presents a chance to see The Muller Big Art Project in Trafalgar Square.

The others will be pre-painted by a number of TV and Radio personalities, newspapers, local schools and art colleges. Mark Speight urges crowds to come along saying: “Please come and support the event, help raise money for Comc Relief and have ‘pots’ of fun at the same time!” See the giant painting pieced together to reveal the final picture and take part in other activities including Muller fairground stalls, caricaturists and music.

jobs The write stuff Paula O’Shea, managing director of The Journalist Works, offers a foot in the door of production journalism “Production journalism can be one of the most rewarding jobs in the business. You are responsible for giving your publication its final look and feel. You write the headlines, design the page, check the facts and make sure the copy is fair, balanced and within the law. “No two days are the same. You’ll be working on reports about everyone from heroes to villains and features on celebrities to the man in the street. It’s all about everyday life but it’s far from routine. “Above all it’s an important editorial job – and those with the right skills for it are in demand. “With over 25 years in print, radio, national television journalism and
journalism education, I know how to deliver the skills the industry needs. I successfully established and ran the Brighton Centre for Journalism at City College Brighton and Hove, and launched the BA in Sport Journalism at the University of Brighton. “My new training company, The Journalist Works, offers top-flight training from some of the best talent in the industry. Our courses arm students with the sub-editing and production skills newspapers, magazines and websites really want. Based at the offices of a busy daily newspaper in Brighton, students are immersed in a real journalistic environment from day one and have plenty of opportunities for work experience throughout the course.
“You’ll be working on reports about everyone from heroes to villains and features on celebrities to the man in the street” “Most importantly, our courses are accredited by the National Centre for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and successful students leave with an NCTJ Diploma in Production Journalism – the industry gold standard. What’s more, we provide quality training at a price students can afford in a time frame that delivers the goods soundly but as quickly as possible. “You could be a university graduate, a sixthform leaver or simply looking for a change in career. But if you’re interested in words and have a flair for page design you could have what it takes to carve out an exciting new career in production journalism. “Our one day introductory courses will start on Monday April 16 and a 12 week diploma in production journalism starts on Monday April 23. Further courses will follow in October and January 2008.” To find out more visit our website at www.thejournalistworks.co.uk, call us on 01273 324351 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.

She says it how she sees it
The Singing Estate Channel Five, 13 March, 7.15pm Ivor is a renowned composer, and for some reason he decides it would be fun to go to a run-down estate and turn a group of its residents into a choir good enough to perform in front of 5,000 people at the Royal Albert Hall. There is only two weeks until the concert and no one seems to have practised so Ivor is worried. He has to choose a soloist for one of the songs and he decides a man called Bobby might be right for the job. Bobby’s family have different ideas as singing with the choir has meant he is no longer spending so much time with his wife and two young children. Colin, who wanted the solo Bobby was given, has found another way to take centre stage. He is a songwriter and singer and has decided to rewrite one of his reggae songs to make it classical! Bless him, you can’t help but giggle slightly; it does look and sound like a comedy sketch. As the concert looms closer Ivor becomes more and more nervous for his choir that never really seems to improve. Before performing at the Albert Hall the choir are putting on a community concert for their friends and families. And you would have thought that with two performances coming up the members would want to try slightly harder. With a matter of hours until the community concert the choir are pulling it together, but will it be too little too late? Get ready to feel nervous!
NCIS Channel Five, 16 March, 9pm Another American murder investigation drama series. Think CSI with a different cast! This episode starts with a dead person – surprise! Three models are living in an army base sort of place for a reality TV show. One of the girls is missing and one of the other girls sees her hanging from a barrier fence. Her body is taken away for an autopsy and it’s found that she had taken too many drugs, run into the fence, had a fit and died. But, the NCIS keep investigating because (bet you can’t guess) there must be more to the story. So the team of the over-confident attractive male, the quietly beautiful sarcastic sidekick, the (supposedly) attractive older man boss looking for a date and the big big boss lady with nice suits and a bit of a problem, all try and solve the mystery. How do you decide what murder investigation programme to watch? This one, one that is pretty much exactly the same or a different one with the same sort of characters? The only difference with this one is that the girl who works in the lab is a Goth. You see, the thing I don’t like about all these American crime scene shows is that the victims are always models or just weird. Compare that to something like Midsomer Murders where the victim was the wife of the vicar and the murderer was the gardener, and every scene is shot somewhere with lovely scenery and crappy little jokes that make it just so British. I’m not knocking it if you like this programme, I can understand why, they can become quite addictive!
Films on TV This week’s must-see movies
10 Things I Hate About You
Emma ★★★★✩ (1996, BBC2, 7.35pm. Dir Douglas McGrath) Gwyneth Paltrow knocked her career into high gear as Jane Austen’s arch bitch for this smart adaptation of the English Lit favourite. Taking in the lead character’s strengths as well as her irritating self-delusion makes the audience more sympathetic to the action, creating a smart, modern spin on a witty novel. MC
★★★★★ (1999, ITV2, 10pm. Dir Gil Junger) Retelling old Bill’s classic comedy Taming Of The Shrew, teen movie style, Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles star with added support from Third Rock’s Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Goes to show that with a good cast and an excellent script there can be good teen movies. No really, they do exist, and this sharp movie is the proof. Victoria Nangle
WEDNESDAY 14 Pretty Woman ★★★ (1990, ITV2, 9pm. Dir Garry Marshall) It’s the same old story: boy meets whore, boy leases whore for the week and then whore gets cross because she’s not treated like a princess. Saccharine sweet at times, this romcom vehicle for Julia Roberts and Richard Gere is as if a John Hughes film had grown up and started hanging out with the wrong crowd. VN
THURSDAY 15 Goodfellas ★★★★★ (1990, Channel 4, 10pm. Dir Martin Scorsese) “As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a gangster.” So begins what’s for many the classic gangster flick featuring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci as murderous wise guys taking newby Ray Liotta under their wing. Grimly good fun, with an excellent 1970s soundtrack. Matt Chittock
FRIDAY 16 Reversal of Fortune ★★★✩✩ (1990, ITV3, 10.10pm. Dir Barbet Schroeder) Jeremy Irons is deliciously inscrutable as Claus von Bulow, the real-life aristo who was tried for the sensational murder of his wealthy wife back in the 1980s. Part documentary, part satire on the perversions of the rich and famous it’s a classy movie roughly adapted from the best-selling book. MC
Alien ★★★★✩ (1979, Film4, 10.45pm. Dir Ridley Scott) Ultramodern creature feature meets old-fashioned haunted house horror for a mould-breaking sci-fi flick that still holds some shocks for contemporary audiences. Sigourney Weaver goes great guns as a bitch who bites back while HR Geiger’s production design mixes the biological with the fantastical to horrific effect. MC
48 latest 7
Donnie Brasco ★★★✩✩ (1997, Channel 4, 11.40pm. Dir Mike Newell) More Mafia action starring Al Pacino as an ageing hit man who takes young pretender Johnny Depp under his wing, unaware that he’s actually an undercover agent. No Goodfellas, by any means, but still worth staying up for. MC
SUNDAY 18 Not Another Teen Movie
★★★✩✩ (1998, Five, 10pm. Dir Joel Gallen) Spirited but hit-and-miss spoof of the best teen efforts from the past 20 years based around a gossamer-thin plot with a dim sportsman trying to transform an ugly girl into a prom queen. Watch out for parodies of She’s All That, The Breakfast Club, Risky Business and American Pie. MC
MONDAY 19 8 Women ★★★★✩ (2001, Film 4, 1.40am. Dir François Ozon) Outstanding French director François Ozon gathers his favourite movie divas together and has fun with the result in this playful piece of camp featuring a bevy of Gallic girls including Ludivine Sagnier and Emmanuelle Béart implicated in a murder mystery. Don’t expect much else except good looks and the odd song and dance number – but it’s still a lovely bit of fluff. MC
It’s a family affair, Goodfellas, Thurs, Channel 4, 10pm
tuesday 13 Comic Relief Does Fame Academy BBC1, 7pm It’s a good thing Comic Relief is doing Fame Academy. If it weren’t for these sporadic celeb encounters, the dusty old institution could disappear altogether. There are six celebs left in the competition. Vote to save a starving child, or just vote to watch a celeb cry.
Kidnapped Channel 4, 10pm It’s this drama about a posh kid who gets kidnapped, right? 15year-old Leopold (yes, that really is his name cos he’s posh, geddit?) is grabbed on his way to school with his bodyguard (yes, he’s really that posh). His father Conrad Cain (alliterative name means you’re either in Superman or posh) needs help. Clever.
I Love 1997 BBC4, 7.10pm Isn’t it grand when nostalgia telly focuses barely a decade behind you? With it seeming like yesterday, Melinda Messenger reminisces on the Teletubbies, the introduction of the docusoap and the cinema debut of the heroine a million women swore never to become – Bridget Jones. Aren’t you glad it’s now?
